Monday, December 1 st Entry Task 1.Get a book. Turn to page 182. 2.Write down the Big Idea of chapter 6. 3.Write down the Key concepts for all 4 sections in chapter 6. Schedule: Read/RSG 6.1 Earth’s Structure Visual Homework: Complete 6.1 RSG Complete Earth’s Structure Visual Objective: I can understand that Earth has several layers
Visual Instruction You need to make some type of “visual” to represent Earth’s structure –Foldable –Poster –Brochure –Book You must include all of Earth’s layers (including the asthenosphere and lithosphere) You must include important information about each layer –Picture –Temperature –Pressure –Density –Any other additional facts from notes, book or RSG
Tuesday, December 2 nd Entry Task Decide if the following statements are true. If they are true, write them down as is. If they are false correct them and write out the true statement. 1.The rock cycle describes the natural processes that form, change, break down, and form rocks again. 2.The most common types of rocks in Earth’s crust are sedimentary and igneous. 3.Heat or pressure can change a rock into another type of rock. Review: Answer the question using full sentences, IQIA. 1. Which soil horizon do weathered rock particles and organic matter mostly make up? Schedule: Earth’s Layers Notes Homework: 6.1 Vocabulary Objective: I can understand important information about Earth’s layers Please Have on Desk: Earth Structure Visual
A Journey from the Inside Out: Introduction: The Earth’s layered structure is the result of three factors: temperature, pressure, and density - affecting different Earth substances.
A Journey from the Inside Out: Inner Core: Solid but hot (7500 o C) metals (Nickel and Iron); intense pressure (13 g/cm 3 ); 2400 km diameter.
A Journey from the Inside Out: Outer Core: Hot but cooler (4400- 6100 o C) metals; less pressure so a liquid; 2300 km thick; creates magnetic field.
A Journey from the Inside Out: Mantle: Hot rock (rich in iron, magnesium and calcium), less dense than core (3.4 g/cm 3 ); 2900 km thick.
A Journey from the Inside Out: Asthenosphere: Layer of hot soft rock in the upper mantle that can move like thick paste.
A Journey from the Inside Out: Crust: Thin layer of cool rock; 6-70 km thick. Two types - continental (2.7 g/cm 3 ); granite) and oceanic (3.0 g/cm 3 ); basalt).
A Journey from the Inside Out: Lithosphere: Most rigid earth layer; crust + upper mantle; sits on asthenosphere.
Wednesday, December 3 rd Entry Task Draw a diagram showing and labeling Earth’s four layers. Identify the lithosphere and the asthenosphere on your diagram. Schedule: Chapter 6 Vocabulary Homework Finish Chapter 6 vocabulary Objective: I can understand vocabulary terms associated with plate tectonics Please have on desk: 6.1 Vocabulary
Chapter 6 Vocabulary Do every single word from all 4 sections of chapter 6. There are 23 words! Find a list of words on page 214 Will turn in as a packet- do NOT glue into notebook This is due Tomorrow, December 4 th.
Thursday, December 4 th Entry Task Looking at your vocabulary from yesterday: 1.Identify 5 words from chapter 6 that you think you may struggle with. 2.Identify 5 words from chapter 6 that you feel comfortable with Schedule: Read 6.2 6.2 Worksheet Homework Finish 6.2 RSG Objective: I can understand the tectonic plates change position over time Please have on desk: Chapter 6 vocabulary packet
To do today Read 6.2 with your partner Work on the 6.2 Questions Worksheet with your partner Once worksheet is complete, bring it up to Mrs. Guttormsen so that you can get the 6.2 RSG Complete the 6.2 RSG If done with everything for 6.2 re-read both 6.1 and 6.2 to gain additional understanding
Friday, December 5 th Entry Task Write out each definition and match it with the correct term. 1.Huge landmass in which all continents were once joined 2.Hypothesis that Earth’s continents were once joined in a single landmass and gradually moved apart 3.Theory that Earth’s lithosphere is made up of huge, moving plates that are carried around the planet by motions in the mantle. Terms: Pangaea, sea-floor spreading, plate tectonics, continental drift Schedule: Convection Currents Lab Homework Complete Lab Packet 6.1 and 6.2 Quiz Monday Objective: I can understand how convection currents move Earth’s plates Please Have on Desk: 6.2 RSG DO NOT TOUCH THE LAB SUPPLIES
